Hello All,

This is a pretty basic question. I want to know the standard way by which a properties file in the WEB-INF/conf can be retrieved by a servlet. That is the way in which it has the minimum dependencies with the appserver (i.e the directory in which the webapps is located, the make of appserver etc.)

I have used the init-param tags, but I had to give the full path (i.e C:\\Apache..) as the param value.

TYA,
QMS

Will tell you chaps about it. I was aware of a ServletContext object, so I too a wild guess and accepted the reply from objects. Now if that does'nt work, well my bad luck :)

LOL. Aside from rudely ignoring my request, you'd have thought from your point of view it might be just slightly useful to check the answers before making a choice.
